Petenali asked "What Non-Fiction book have you read that has changed your life" and it made me think of my childhood and how I devoured any book about space and the universe and so longed to go to space. I'm curious if anyone else shared that dream, still does, or what others dreamed of doing as a child...
sort by best latest
Sounds like you have it together with knowing what you want! And hey, there is nothing wrong with still studying things you love... I am not smart enough to be a scientist but boy do i love studying space and physics
What potential is squandered when access to education is determined by the money you have or don't have. The same with health care when access to it is determined and limited by monetary considerations. How many great palaeontologists have we lost?
I have met many gifted children who live under the poverty line. Some of them become very successful but I am afraid most are hindered at best. It is a sad thing indeed.
I'm sure you were a superb teacher! I hope you still played baseball for fun! I can't go to space for the hell of it, but my passion never died and I still love reading about it and staying with the "space news"
I remember that!! And yes, I know you love science and animals. Maybe you can combine the two somehow!!
Hahaha! You always know how to make me laugh. And smile = ) Thank you for being my father = )
I'm so sorry you were pushed into something that didn't fit your dream.. BUT it's great that you have a family and have children, which is an adventure all on its own! I was also a nerd LOL I spent my childhood with my nose in a book
Awesome! I think you are lucky = )
Hahaha I hear that! some days I still want to hide in my house and play games all day
Oh my, that all sounds so familiar! I long to travel to space, I am mom, student, writer, and love photography... I hope you can make it to space!
I totally understand and agree. I spent a lot of time as a younger person wanting to be like others or look like others. I love what you said in your comment about being you. so true!!
Haha I remember being influenced by movies. Twister was mine, for a while I had a complete obsession with meteorology and wanted to go chase tornados
They truly never do stop. I have gone through my own huge list of things I wanted to be, and the list has only gotten longer now that I am a mother and have to look seriously at what to do with my life. Good luck on your dreams!!
I know what you mean! I have wanted to be everything from an astronaut to an actress and everything in between. the reality of paying for shcool hit me too, I couldn't afford it and wasn't eligable for help until I had my son, so I'm doing it now!
That would be a very thrilling career... I myself and terrified of flying = ) So space maybe wouldn't be the best option for me LOL
Haha, I understand that so much! I LOVE science and reading about physics and things like that but I am horrible at math. I tried pursuing a Commun./Media major and realized I'm horrible at comupter technollgy too.So now its psychology. No Math!!
I'm sorry to hear that, but I'm sure you could if you put your mind to it!
Consider community acting. They usually rehearse evenings because everyone works. Also, the lady that played Sue Ellen on the original Dallas was not an actress - She went to an open call and was hired for the role! She was about forty yrs old!
too small to be a game warden? that's too bad! I hope you found something else you love!
Haha, "assaulted the ears of my family", that is soo funny! I'm sure your weren't that bad1
Oh I sooo understand those dreams... I till look at the stars and just wish with all my might that I could be up there, soaring through space and seeing all these beautiful things!
My dad was a huge football fan and that I remember being upset that I was a girl, because I thought it would be awesome to play football... I'm sorry you didn't get to!!
Too many injuries.
Yes injuries are rampant in football. I am torn between wanting my son to play and worrying he will get seriously injured... Then again, that could happen in a billion other ways...
